Cutting Room for May 16

- Here’s the thing: I don’t really care what Zach Galifianakis and Will Ferrell choose to make a movie about, only that they’re teaming up again. The Make-ya-pee-your-pants Pair (feel free to steal that, guys) aren’t doing a sequel to The Campaign, but they are doing Larry’s Kidney. What’s fascinating is that the director, Richard Linklater, is known more for sly, subtle, heartbreaking dramedies than goofy schtick films. Does this mean Galifiankis and Ferrell will have to, you know, actually try to act this time?

- I like Dave Franco. You get all of the angular, pretty boy good looks of his brother James with only about 50% of the self-entitled pretentiousness. Looks like Sony is a fan too, as they have bought the rights to The Intern’s Handbook with the intent of making it Davey boy’s franchise. It’s about an agency of assassins who put their killers into major corporations. Maybe you’re right to be suspicious of the new guy in accounts payable…

- Reminder: Just because you own the rights to a comic book character doesn’t mean you have to make a movie out of it. Universal is supposedly mulling a Namor movie. If you’re asked “Who is Namor?” this is why they shouldn’t make a Namor movie. Namor is basically Marvel’s version of Aquaman, only with more exposed man boob and a widow’s peak. He also has these adorable wings on his ankles for no discernable evolutionary reasons. If any of that made you want to see this movie, this is why they may make a Namor movie.

- If you hadn’t heard, H.R. Giger died. He was 74. The crazy, nightmare-inducing artist is perhaps best known for creating the design of the alien in Alien, but his work influenced so many films it’s truly remarkable. His indelible work will endure but, as a friend pointed out, for the first time in ages, there is an opening in the genital-inspired, slimy monster designer market.

Cutting Room for May 9

-If you’re one of the people who doesn’t think that science and facts are a matter of opinion, you’re likely a fan of finding a source of energy that won’t turn our planet into Tatooine. Askarben Cinema has found the future of energy! Or at least are showing a documentary called The Future of Energy: Lateral Power to the People on Thursday May 29 in partnership with SolarCon Renewables of Omaha. The film is an upbeat look at some renewable energy issues, including a look at Greensburg, Kansas, a town that gets all its energy from wind. Given certain politicians in Kansas, I’m going to just assume that the air the town harvests is hot and originates from human mouths.

-Rumor has it that Chris Hemsworth, he of Thor and rippling muscles, is being sought after for the Mel Gibson role in a remake of Lethal Weapon. Except, there isn’t really much uniqueness to the Lethal Weapon concept. So, another way of saying this rumor is: “Chris Hemsworth sought to star as a cop opposite a black actor.”

-Star Trek 3 won’t be directed by JJ Abrams like the last two, as he moved a few far, far away galaxies over. Instead, it’s looking more and more like it will be directed by Roberto Orci, who is really bad at everything. He’s half of the writing duo that ruined Transformers and The Amazing Spider-man and happens to be a public 9/11 truther, which makes him gross as well as bad at everything. Actually, there’s another way of saying this story too: Ryan is no longer looking forward to Star Trek 3.

-Good news, guys! Judd Apatow is finally giving us that on-screen pairing we’ve wanted for a while now, as he has cast LeBron James and Method Man in his upcoming movie Trainwreck. I’m sure there’s some kind of joke about the result that this casting will have in conjunction with the film’s name. Oh, got it: This is gonna wreck LeBron’s training! Nailed it.
